Oatmeal Wafers “Havreflarn” with Nutella

Here is another recipe that would not be easier and quicker to make but tastes fabulous. They are called “Havreflarn” in Swedish or Oatmeal Wafer is probably the best translation.  These wafers you can find everywhere in Sweden, they have been around ever since I was a little kid.  You can even get these in IKEA today.  Your main ingredients are oats.  There are so many things you can do to these.  Some of the most common ones are dipping them in chocolate.  Another one which i did was add Nutella to them, or you can add Nutella in the middle of two wafers.  Some folks add whipped cream between two wafers.  It is really up to you what you like.  You can even add 2 tbsp of cocoa into the batter or 2 tbsp of coconut as well.  All of those things taste good. 

Oatmeal Wafers “Havreflarn” with Nutella

7 tbsp butter
1 1/4 cup oats
1 egg
2/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp baking powder

Oven 350 F

Melt the butter in a pot and stir in the oats.  Set aside.  In a separate bowl mix the egg and sugar well. Then pour in the baking power and flour.  Once it is mixed add the oats and butter a little at the time. On a cookie sheet drop batter a 1 tsp at a time. Do not add anymore than 9 of these with 3 inches apart.  Bake for 7-9 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.  Let stand 1 minute before removing quickly with sharp knife or spatula. Cool on rack.  Do one batch at a time if you let the batter sit too long the oats swell and the cookie will not expand as well.

Once the wafers have cooled heat a little of the Nutella and spread it on the wafers.

Makes about 27 wafers.

    Ciao, ho trovato il tuo blog andando alla ricerca dei cookies dell’Ikea. La tua ricetta mi piace molto. Sono solo un po’ titubante sulla quantità di farina. Sono davvero sufficienti due cucchiai??? O parliamo di cup??? Me lo faresti sapere a breve, perché nel week end vorrei veramente provarli. Intanto mi segno tra i tuoi follower perché il tuo blog è veramente bello!!
    p.s. Nutella is wonderful!!!
